DENVER (CBS4) – The Colorado State Patrol reminded the public about the dangers of wildfires and the best way to fight them – preventing them.

Trooper Josh Lewis posted a message on Facebook, as he’s done in the past, about how a small cigarette butt can be the most harmful enemy to our landscape – especially during dry conditions.

“Keep your butt, in your car,” Lewis said. “We’re out there. We’re looking and if you throw some type of lighted material, it’s an automatic summons to go and talk to a judge, no ifs, ands or butts.”
